A Fashionista's Guide To Holidaying With Hand-Luggage

A Fashionista's Guide To Holidaying With Hand-Luggage / Blog Simplicity in Vogue / @ByAndreaB - travel tips, how to pack, travel light, fashion and style

For the style-conscious, getting away provides the ideal excuse to buy new pieces and have fun with fashion. By the end of our vacation shopping, most of us struggle to meet even the checked luggage weight of our flight companies. Ahh, the joys of trying to weigh a crammed suitcase onto bathroom scales. That’s why this post might send fear through you. How could you ever go away with just hand luggage? It’s madness. Why would we even suggest something so absurd?

In truth, though, rising prices mean checked luggage isn’t always a wise choice. It can end up costing more than your flights themselves if you aren’t careful. By comparison, one piece of checked luggage is free with most flight carriers. And, as can be seen from reviews like those on Veolia Cargo, most luggage options now come in hand-held designs as well. Many even state which airlines you can take them on. If the price isn’t temptation enough, consider that it’s also possible to look amazing all holiday with just hand luggage. All you need to do is make sure you take care of the following when you pack.


Think multi-purpose

Multi-Purpose pieces are a must when you’re stripping back. Though hand luggage allowances are often more generous than we realize, they are still limited. You’re going to want to get as much use as possible from every item you pack. Mostly, that means thinking about different potential uses for each thing. A daytime beach sari, for example, could turn into a fantastic evening dress. A plain t-shirt could be ideal for the beach, but also suit a smart meal with a jacket over the top. Skirts are excellent, too. They can become dresses in moments. Pack a few things like these, and you’ll be able to have half the space you need without even trying.

Focus on color

Focusing on colour is an amazing way to craft your own signature style. It’s the pop which can bring any outfit to life. It also provides you with the chance to make a statement with a small amount of luggage. By focusing your vacation wardrobe around a few colourful pieces, you could look amazing the entire time. Match these with neutral basics, and you could end up with a fresh and fabulous outfit every day of your stay.

Pack smart


It’s also worth getting smart with how you pack. This is always important, but it becomes vital when you’re working with limited space. Folding your clothes in the usual way can take up a lot of room. Instead, you might benefit from rolling them and stacking them upright. This ensures that each item doesn’t take up too much space. It also leaves you with plenty of room around the edges to put little extras. Most hand luggage options don’t even have weight limits. As such, getting this right could see you taking nearly as much with you as you would in a checked choice. All for a fraction of the cost!
